Winning while now only drawing 245W from the wall (230v).

245W is 245W whatever the voltage; but I'm still jealous. It's winter here and I can't get mine below about 900W even tho the actual heating is natural gas. I don't think the five PVRs and four laptops permanently connected help the situation. And the CH water pump pulls nearly 200W when running. At least the freezer in the external garage doesn't have a lot to do this time of year.

Saturday? - that was a late start, we've had one running since my little bro's birthday in mid October, due to finish late January....

That's one way to keep the cold out. Party on!

Ok here we go...I didn't exactly discount the HP references but I'm not a fan and sadly may have missed some of the humour.

The honorable mentions go to
Admiral Gloval [for replicating the original caption] "This is why women live longer than men."
anniet [thinking outside the box] "I'm not sure that new pool cleaning service knows what they're doing..."
Carlos [thinking outside the box] "Attempt at creating a new water sport"
Sirius B [first mention of Christmas I've seen on the board] "It's Xmas you fool, not Halloween"

And the winners are...
#3 Grant Nelson "Flying off the handle."
#2 rob smith "Don't look up"
#1 JumpinJohnny "I hope this broom handle between my legs doesn't break my sunglasses when I hit...

Thank you all for participating, and a PM will be sent shortly

Edit: apologies to the last two posters whose efforts crossed my deliberations.

Have to fling on the bling and go to square dance where I am club secretary.

Lots of good entries. Expect judging approx 19:00 UTC.

What enthusiasm.
As several of you have given multiple answers, and multiple posts I have to ask: Am I waiting for 10 phrases or 10 posts, or 10 separate entrants?

<snip> Hopefully you will be able to get the results by phone, as that means "nothing to worry about", but if you do have to go and see the quack again
I hope it is something they can treat without resorting to the knife.

+1

The bottle said "drink me" and now look what's happened.

[not my 1st thought , but remembered "kid friendly" in time]

Speaking of trouble sleeping...

Good morning all - Yes, I'm in the UK, but since retiring my life seems to have gone asynchronous.
My Beloved Technophobe always was so she's no help (in this regard).
My only clock input is the square dance clubs some evenings, and family visits some weekends.

Hi Mike,
Get the doc to declare your problems permanent so the employer has to provide suitable adjustments?

<snip>, but then again we have his legacy of Credit New that is still dropping our credits well below other projects. ;-)

As I only work on Seti I didn't know that. How much conspiracy do you want? Start with (based on credits)
"Look, far less CPU going into SETI. Must not be popular any more, so let's can it."
